I Would By An Older Ford Pickup Truck Before I Would By One New — I love my truck I've owned my 79 ford for 11 years now ant have not even so much as replaced an alternator. Just your basic tune ups and regular oil changes. The emissions on that truck as good as a new car.

This Truck Is A Beast. — Build like a tank. I off road it five to ten times a year and it has yet to leave me stranded. From hill climbs to having it hood deep in mud it just keeps coming back for more. Its a great truck.
